I can only vouch for Michael. I know a few others love his tones too. As for music, what era do you like? I like everything but I tend to search for running albums on Apple Music. I have a favourite one which is current chart songs remixed to a faster beat.

I myself like Jo Whiley! Music at the moment is an 80's mix, but I do try to mix it up too.

Hey Bev! I can't advise on best trainers but in terms of music l could go on for days ;) Personally, l listen to whatever makes me feel comfortable, and l always pre-plan my choice depending on the length of the run, mood, or even the weather (don't ask). I know that some of us like to follow the beat of our chosen songs which is something that l would never do, simply because the beat could be faster than the burning thighs or lungs, or slower, which could make it even worse. My idea is that music should simply complement the body moves when running and give better vibes to the running environment ;) Works well for me!

Hey, please don't sprint :) And Michael made my runs good, no idea if he's the best ;) Enjoy yourself, that's what counts!

Okay I am severely biased, I love Mr Smooth aka Michael. I created my own music playlist and run that alongside Michael. I think it was Irishprincess who rated jog.fm where you can download according to your pace. And btw you'v done the toughest run. Kicking the couch is always the hardest - going from nothing to something... well done

Deffo Michael... no to Jo Whiney.... irritated the bejebus out of me....

Music... I think something like LittleMix have some great beats but to keep me going I generally have now gone onto Disturbed or Seether... then I can get angry with the music and clear my head x
